Our First Apartment As a Married Couple

I was not looking forward to moving to the Boston area. I was born and raised in the Midwest in a small rural area, and I was a country girl at heart. I married my high school sweetheart after he returned home from college and we discovered we still cared deeply for one another. The only bad thing was that there were just no jobs for him back home. He sent out his resume to a lot of companies, which is how I found myself looking at Boston luxury apartments a couple of weeks before our wedding.

He was accepted at a law firm in Boston, and we knew that this was a move we had to make if he was going to make anything of himself. He is the one who told me to look at luxury apartments because he was given a lucrative salary and benefits, and he wanted me to be happy with our new home. Since I was so far away, I had to use the Internet to find what would be our first home together. (more…)

Helped My Boss Move to a New Condo

Of course the boss has to move to a new place because his wife caught him sneaking around on her. It seems like he is in a good deal of trouble to a lot of us and we are worried about what it means for us. He is a man with vices and he likes to gamble in ways that effect the business and he likes to gamble period. At any rate he moved to a one bedroom place at this condo place called Seaside Residences near Siglap. I got the sales pitch from the girl who was selling them, even though it was pretty obvious that I was just trying to get her number. There are two 26 floor buildings and they have something like eight hundred and fifty units in total. In the middle of the two buildings they have some sort of atrium I guess. (more…)

I Just Started a New Job

It is not precisely what I was looking for when I graduated from college, but it is not too bad. When you compare the check stub I get now with the one I got making pizzas at Gino’s while I was in college, that is a real difference. I have been trying to resist the urge to go out and blow a bunch of money on the stuff that I want, but do not really need. In fact for now I am going to be trying really hard to get things in order. I have a big pile of college debt obviously, more than I can get rid of at any near time. It is a big thing and I have to get hold of it. Obviously anything that you can get rid of immediately is going to reduce the interest that you end up paying over the life of the loan. (more…)
